Ellen Adarna on posing sexy in photos: “I’m just there to do it and finish it, . .”!

Ellen Adarna is now getting all the attention she deserves since she is already in showbiz for some time now!


It is only when she turned Kapamilya that she gets noticed and is now very visible in TV, Print and social media.

Ellen is also not afraid to pose sexy in magazines, endorsements and in her exercise videos. This is what she said on being sexy in front of the camera:

“I don’t really think about it. Kung may photo shoot, okay lang kahit sexy or if may eksena na kailangan sexy. I’m just there to do it and finish it, para matapos na. I mean, it’s just a job for me.”

On her experience so far with fans:

“So far naman I haven’t dealt with any guy na binastos ako or anything. So for now, wala pa naman akong problema, basta huwag lang mangmanyak, I guess. I mean, you can look, but you can’t touch.”

Mario Gotze scores only goal as Germany beat Argentina in World Cup 2014!

Source: The

Germany deservedly lifted the World Cup because of a moment of brilliance from Mario Götze – Mario de Janeiro – because of the team’s resilience and intelligence, because of the tackling of the outstanding Jérôme Boateng and because Bastian Schweinsteiger kept going even when battered by Argentine tackles, even when bruised, even when bloodied as his cheek was opened up.

Schweinsteiger was the best player on the pitch, spilling sweat and blood for the cause.

Germany also prevailed because of the hard work put in by the Deutsche Fussball-Bund since 2004 in transforming its youth-development structure, in calmly preparing inexorably for nights like this. It built football centres for kids, built up a reservoir of talent which saw Götze come off the bench, and built towards a fourth World Cup. A stellar team now has a fourth star to go on that famous white shirt.

Götze’s goal was a worthy winner of any final, a wonderful take of André Schürrle’s cross on his chest and then hooked finish past Sergio Romero.

Such a splendid World Cup required a fabulous end, although the final was not a classic. Lionel Messi vomited in the first half, and never looked close to his peak. Gonzalo Higuaín and Rodrigo Palacio missed fine chances.

At the final whistle, Argentina were a mix of dignified and bereft in defeat. Their coach, Alejandro Sabella, walked across to Joachim Löw and embraced the winning coach. Schweinsteiger hugged Messi, trying to console him, but the greatest player of the modern era looked in a daze.

Schweinsteiger did well to be standing, having taken some fearful hits from the Argentines, from Javier Mascherano twice, from Lucas Biglia and Sergio Agüero.

He had a few words for Messi but the vanquished captain was hardly listening. Exuding all the enthusiasm of condemned men, Messi stood with his team-mates, and Sabella, waiting for the call to go and collect their ­losers’ medals. They hardly moved, as if almost turned to stone by the ­misery within. Agüero’s eyes moistened. Ezequiel Garay and Martin Demichelis, who had played so well until Götze called, looked on, heartbroken.

Messi first had to go and pick up the Golden Ball, a decision greeted with widespread surprise. Messi was not even Argentina’s best player at this tournament; the tireless warrior Mascherano was. How Messi was given the Golden Ball ahead of Thomas Müller, ahead of Schweinsteiger and ahead of James Rodríguez is one for Fifa’s technical study group to justify. We expect bizarre decisions from Sepp Blatter but not from respected coaches like Gérard Houllier and former internationals like Sunday Oliseh, Ioan Lupescu and Mixu Paatelainen. Very odd.

The Germans did not seem too bothered. As the Maracana speakers pumped out Happy, Götze was underneath a huge Teutonic pile-on. The Brazilian fans loved Argentina’s discomfort, taunting the Messi fan club with signals to the five stars on their chest and pretending to cry.

Schweinsteiger led the Germans up, shaking hands with Dilma Rousseff, who was roundly booed by many Brazilians present, and then embracing Angela Merkel. Dilma handed the trophy to Philipp Lahm, and stepped back, as the derision rained in. Lahm lifted the trophy to the skies, as the fireworks hurtled upwards.

It then got shared around. Sami Khedira, who unfortunately damaged his calf in the warm-up, kissed the trophy gently before hoisting it up. Gözte held it with his right hand, stared at it in wonderment, as it sank in that he had scored in a final, echoing the feats of the likes of Pele, Mario Kempes, Gerd Müller, Gerson, Jairzinho, Zinedine Zidane, Andrés Iniesta and Geoff Hurst. Götze then passed the World Cup to Schürrle, returning the compliment from the most decisive moment of the final.

Schweinsteiger, clutching the ­trophy, and Lahm led the squad’s run towards their fans. Manuel Neuer ­signalled they should get closer. Mesut Özil, stripped to the waist, climbed over the hoardings, and the players followed him and Neuer, forcing their way through the milling photographers and going to their supporters, sharing the moment with them. The fans held up stars denoting World Cups – 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014. They had come well prepared.
Behind the dancing players, one figure in white could be seen. Müller was overwhelmed with emotion, perhaps even exhaustion. He briefly held back from the partying pack of his team-mates. He looked at the Maracana pitch, knowing he had run himself into the ground for his country.

Müller could reflect that Germany’s journey to glory in Brazil began in the heat of Salvador, his hat-trick helping thrash Portugal, then on to Fortaleza and that entertaining draw with Ghana before the group concluded with a hard-fought win over the United States in Recife, Müller again proving decisive. Algeria were overcome in extra-time, this time Özil scoring at the death. Mats Hummels proved too powerful for France in the quarter-final while German players were queuing up to score against Brazil, the four goals in six minutes arguably the most remarkable period in World Cup history. And then this.

It was a feast for the rich and powerful, for Vladimir Putin, Pele, Angela Merkel, Bebeto, Mick Jagger, Kaka, Shakira, Gisele Bündchen and Carles Puyol who carried the trophy out with all the tender care of a father cradling a newborn.

The fight to succeed Puyol’s Spain as world champions had started with Germany enjoying plenty of possession, 65 per cent before the interval, but Argentina were always a threat on the counter. Messi glided down the right, cutting into space vacated by Ezequiel Lavezzi, and running at Hummels, who had been lured wide. Messi flicked at the accelerator, taking him away from Hummels, reaching the bye-line and cutting the ball back. Schweinsteiger, a defensive as well as creative force this tournament, had dropped back and positioned himself well to clear.
Argentina attacked again, wasting a gift of a chance after 20 minutes. Toni Kroos decided to head the ball back to Neuer, not checking for blue shirts.

Higuaín took a touch, heading into inviting space with Neuer not in one of his sweeper moods. Higuaín glanced right, perhaps checking whether Messi was around. The Napoli centre-forward never looked convincing as he addressed the ball. He caught it with his shin, and dragged it wide. Awful.

Some of Argentina’s subs pulled their bibs over their heads, trying to block out the sight of such a horrible miss. Sabella turned away in frustration.

Christoph Kramer had never recovered from his collision with Garay and departed, looking shell-shocked, his eyes hollow. In the ensuing debriefings on events at this World Cup, Fifa’s medical department needs to examine whether officials are responding adequately enough to head injuries.

Kramer was replaced by Schürrle, an attacking move by Löw.

The Germans dominated possession but still could not find a way through Sabella’s well-organised defence. Even when Müller found some space, Schürrle’s shot was athletically saved by Romero. The first period was not a classic but it was compelling to watch, shifting from end to end, Argentina almost doing more with less. Messi showed again, darting away from Hummels, heading the ball on, beating the centre-half for pace, refusing to tumble when an outstretched arm came across him. Messi was too focused on cutting the ball back. As Lavezzi stretched to turn it in, Boateng recovered to clear.

Such moments brought explosions of sound from supporters. It was so intense. Müller and Rojo squared up. Germany came so close to scoring, Howedes escaping from Mascherano and heading Kroos’s corner against the post.
Sabella made his first move at the break, sending on Agüero for Lavezzi. Some space opened up for Messi and he took aim as thousands of his compatriots behind Neuer’s goal stood hopefully. But Messi was almost too casual and rolled his shot wide. After 56 minutes, Argentina were outraged by Neuer’s charge from his line, leaping to punch the ball above Higuaín but the momentum sending his knee into the striker’s head.

This was hardly a Harald Schumacher incident, but it still endangered a forward. Higuaín was even more stunned when a free-kick was awarded against him.

In extra time, Romero saved from Schürrle. Boateng continued to impress, dispossessing Agüero. Palacio missed a wonderful chance, lifting the ball over Neuer but wide. And then came Götze. What a finish.

James Yap on PBA Grand Slam: “Ayaw ko muna isipin.”!


With key remnants from the PBA’s last Grand Slam team – San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone and assistant coach Johnny Abarrientos – guiding the Mixers from the bench, they understand the significance of what they’re trying to accomplish here.

But while San Mig Coffee stars James Yap and Marc Pingris both appreciate the opportunity to play for the Grand Slam, they’d prefer not to think about it for the time being.

“Sabi ni coach Tim and coach Johnny, iba talaga yung pakiramdam kapag naka-Grand Slam,” Yap told in an exclusive interview.

“Pero ako, ayaw ko muna isipin sa ngayon kung ano yung makukuha namin. Gusto ko muna mag-focus sa laro. Pero siyempre, gusto ko makuha yung Grand Slam.”

San Mig Coffee is fortunate to have a coaching staff that has some experience in this particular situation.

Tim Cone, who coached Alaska to the last Grand Slam 18 years ago, is bidding to become the first coach to win it more than once. Also on his bench serving as an assistant is his former star player Abarrientos, who won MVP honors during that remarkable season.

Pingris wants to approach this series the way San Mig Coffee tackled their other finals series in their current run, where they have won three consecutive titles and are currently going for a fourth.

“Katulad ng napagdaanan naming mga finals, kailangan lang yung depensa namin hindi magco-collapse,” Pingris said.

“We have to stay together kahit anong mangyari. Focus lang kung ano yung ipapagawa sa amin ni coach.”

He shared Yap’s sentiment of wanting to get the job done before talking about it.

“Ang nasa isip ko one game, one game, one game,” the San Mig Coffee forward said. “Ayaw ko munang isipin yun kasi dagdag pressure lang.”

Pingris made it clear, though, that the Grand Slam is definitely a goal that he wants to achieve.

“Sino ba namang ayaw ng history? Even si coach, gusto niyang maibalik yung history,” he said.

Wants next boyfriend to be her last:

Spurs beat Heat 104-87 in final game to win NBA title!

SAN ANTONIO — From their low moment in the NBA Finals, back to the top of the league.

The San Antonio Spurs turned the rematch with the Miami Heat into no match at all.

The Spurs finished off a dominant run to their fifth NBA championship Sunday night, ending the Heat’s two-year title reign with a 104-87 victory that wrapped up the series in five games.

A year after their heartbreaking seven-game defeat, their only loss in six finals appearances, the Spurs won four routs to deny Miami’s quest for a third straight championship.


”Hard to believe, isn’t it? Manu Ginobili said. ”We played at a really high level.”

Kawhi Leonard, named the finals MVP, had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs. San Antonio added this title to the ones the Spurs won in 1999, 2003, ’05 and ’07. They nearly had another last year, but couldn’t hold off the Heat and lost in seven games.

San Antonio rebounded from an early 16-point deficit by outscoring the Heat 37-13 from the start of the second quarter to midway in the third.

The celebration the Heat canceled last season was on by the early second half Sunday.

LeBron James had 17 first-quarter points to help the Heat get off to a fast start. But it wasn’t enough. He finished with 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who lost their spot atop the NBA to the team that had it so long.

The Spurs won four titles in nine years, but hadn’t been back on top since 2007, making Foreigner’s ”Feels Like the First Time” and appropriate song choice after the final buzzer.

Tim Duncan and coach Gregg Popovich have been here for all of them, and it was the fourth for Tony Parker and Ginobili, who with Duncan are once again the reigning the Big Three in the NBA.

”Just a great team and we do it together,” Parker said.

Bosh finished with 13 points and Wade just 11 on 4-of-12 shooting for the Heat, providing James nowhere near the help he needed.

The painful conclusion to last year served as the fuel for this one, powering the Spurs to a 62-win season that topped the NBA and led to a rematch with Miami, the NBA’s first in the finals since Chicago beat Utah in 1997-98.

Round 2 went to the Spurs, but both teams will challenges to navigate for a rubber match.

San Antonio will face questions – as it has for years – about the age of its core, and whether Duncan, Ginobili and Popovich want to stick around. The Heat will brace for the potential free agency of James, Wade and Bosh, and will need younger, fresher pieces around the three All-Stars if they all stay.

But this moment belongs to the Spurs. Playing a methodical style for many years that was predicated on throwing the ball into Duncan made San Antonio respected, but never beloved. The Spurs were TV ratings killers, casual viewers finding them not much fun to watch.

But Popovich opened up the offense a few years ago, making the Spurs an easy-to-like, tough-to-beat group that thrives on ball movement and 3-point shooting.

”You showed the world how beautiful this game is,” Commissioner Adam Silver told the Spurs during the postgame award ceremony.

A decade and a half after winning their first title in 1999, when Duncan was in his second season, the Spurs remain the NBA’s model organization, a small-market team that simply wins big and hardly ever does it with a high draft pick. Instead, the Spurs found players overseas or in other organizations who would fit the Spurs’ way of doing things and mesh with the Duncan, Parker and Ginobili, the winningest trio in postseason history.

That included Leonard, acquired in a draft-night trade with Indiana after playing at San Diego State, and Patty Mills, an Australian national who scored 17 points off the bench.

No team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the finals, but the Heat were confident they could keep this season going, Bosh saying earlier Sunday that the Heat were going to win.

It appeared they would do it easily the way the game started, with James coming out with force on offense and shutting down Parker on defense as Miami went ahead 22-6.

But it didn’t last.

While it took San Antonio a little while to get warmed up, the Spurs eventually made it look stunningly easy again – much to the delight of the home crowd, with fans standing, chanting and dancing much of the second half.

Notes: It was the Spurs’ 12th win by 15 or more points, most ever in a postseason. The Spurs outscored opponents by 214 points in the postseason. … Miami had won 11 straight series, tied for the fifth-longest streak in NBA history.
